The Young and the Restless
begins with Heather (Vail Bloom) fielding questions from the press about Jack's connection with Jabot and Ji Min Kim. Cane (Daniel Goddard
) is also there.
Gloria (Judith Chapman
) is still up to her anonymous email campaign as she dictates another scathing missive for Kevin (Greg Rikaart
) to type up. Jill (Jess Walton
) comes in and joins in with the Jack (Peter Bergman
Jana (Emily O'Brien) is having some tests done to see if the tumor is growing back. She's terribly worried, and Kevin rushes over to the hospital to be with her. Gloria makes digs about her.
Phyllis (Michelle Stafford
) and Daniel (Michael Graziadei
) are having breakfast together. Daniel is getting calls on his cell phone from Jack's pissed off constituents. As soon as he's off the phone, Daniel and Phyllis discuss whether Jack might have accidentally killed Ji Min, but Phyllis believes that Jack is a better person and wouldn't let someone die.
Cane tells Jill that although Heather is the perfect woman on paper, he feels a distinct lack of chemistry with her. It's funny because I feel that they have a lot more chemistry than he does with Lily (Christel Khalil
). Speaking of Lily, she and Colleen (Tammin Sursok) are agonizing over whether LIly should tell Cane that she likes him.
Jill and Gloria have lunch at the GCAC to discuss how they can salvage their company from Jack's bad name.
Phyllis tells Daniel that Heather might retry Phyllis' case. Her original decision was reversed, not overturned, which means it was like she was never tried at all. That means Heather can retry Phyllis to her heart's content.
Kevin meets Jana at the hospital. Kevin is not allowed to go into the room during the test.
Cane sidles up to Lily at the bar at the GCAC. He tells him in his sexy, whispery voice that he had a really good time having at Thanksgiving with her. She musters up all her courage and starts to tell him that she likes him, but he gets an important call on his cell, so she can't finish.
Sharon (Sharon Case
) gives Jack a pep talk to keep him going with the damage control. She reminds him that he can't publicly blame Victor for Ji Min's death, so Jack realizes that he can get someone else to point the finger. He calls Daniel, who is at the courthouse. He runs into Heather, and pleads to her one more time not to retry Phyllis.
Phyllis is at the hospital to see Victoria and runs into Jana. They make jokes about escaping in front of the angry-looking prison guard. Jana explains that she's getting another CT scan just for routine testing, and not because she's sick again. Jana tells Kevin proposed to her, and asks Phyllis if she'll be her maid of honor. Jana explains that the only way she's going to accept Kevin's proposal is if she knows she's going to die soon because she doesn't want Kevin to be tied down to someone who will be behind bars for the rest of her life.
Jill and Gloria call Lily over to pick her brain about marketing Jabot cosmetics to the younger woman. Jill asks her if she wears makeup for herself or to attract men, and Cane saunters back from his phone call to listen to her answer. She stutters her response that makeup sometimes makes her feel prettier, but Cane says that she's a natural beauty. This doesn't go unnoticed by Jill. Before Lily takes off, Cane asks her what she was going to say, but she says that it was nothing.
Jana comes back to Kevin after her CT scan. She doesn't have the results yet. Kevin suggests that they get some blood drawn for their marriage license since they are already at the hospital.
Heather walks into the hospital and compliments Phyllis on her work and parenting balance. Heather's hair looks great today. Heather tells her that the district attorney's office is going to retry Phyllis' case, but she is going to make a proposal to Michael (Christian LeBlanc
) that if Phyllis agrees to plead guilty to a lesser charge, Heather will recommend probation for Phyllis instead of incarceration. The only thing she asks in exchange is that Phyllis get Daniel off her back.
Jack and Daniel have something up their sleeve.
Gloria and Kevin set up a meeting at the coffeehouse with Todd Scheller, John Abbott's cellmate. Unfortunately, it is Todd Scheller, Jr., and he doesn't know how to reach is father.
Cane apologizes to Lily at the coffeehouse for Jill putting her on the spot. He repeats that Lily is a very beautiful girl. She starts to tell him that she likes him, but they are interrupted by Heather who says that her work plans have changed and that they can have their dinner date tomorrow. Lily is disappointed to hear this, and tells Cane that what she wasn't going to say anything important. When he presses her, she lies and says that she's collecting donations for the homeless shelter. Can there be a more boring love triangle on The Young and the Restless
Jack has a press conference in which he presents the Genoa City hospital with a big check. One reporter asks him whether he can comment about Victor Newman (Eric Braeden
) being a new person of interest in the Ji Min murder case. Daniel is the one who tipped off the reporter. Jack refuses to comment, and ends the press conference.
Todd Scheller says that his father is an unreliable alcoholic who disappears often. He does have a letter addressed to "My beloved Gloria," probably written by John Abbott. He offers to look for the letter for Gloria.
Next: Gloria reads the letter, Victor and Nikki and Brad appear in court, Nick and JT discuss Victoria's health.
